I've discussed with the Tools PMC, and
others, and we agree -- at this point in time -- this would be worth a
respin to pick up the fix,
for improved "out of the box"
user experience (instead of crashing, in some circumstances).
I say "this point in time"
only because we do have a little buffer built-in to the plan. (A similar
issue, if found at this time next week, would likely not be approved, since
could be fixed from project's own update site).
So, despite the extra work, we do what
a quality result, and WindowBuilder is used in two popular EPP packages,
so ... we will rebuild.

Once you "let us know when done", be sure to include bug number
that describes the issue well.
And, ideally the nature of the fix.
Include some justification why the "risk is work the gain".
That is, there's risk in any rebuild ... both of the build not working
reasons completely unrelated to your fix, or some really weird, unexpected
In other words, at this point, we don't respin for just any one :)
But, naturally, we all have an interest in shipping high quality,
but, you've got to justify why it's worth rocking the whole train.
Could you, for example, make a fix available on your own update site,
to be available at same time we release? Or, would that not work well
for this case? (such as, would damage existing code, before they had the
All that said ... I (we all) do want to help you out, here ...
but, we have to have some limit at some point, so ask that
you justify it along the above lines so we can apply same
criteria to everyone.
